Pittsburg State Quotes

Head Coach Gene Iba

On improving in the exhibition games...
“We asked our players to get better in every exhibition game. I thought today we took a step in that direction. We didn’t play well against Wichita State in the first half and our goal was to start well in this game; I thought we answered that question very well.”

 

On K-State’s come back in the second half...

“That was a really big point in the game. I thought that we were a little tired. When you are a little tired, covering a guy that is going to play for money next year is pretty tough to do sometimes.”

 

On K-State’s Michael Beasley...

“Beasley is going to be a great player. He has got to continue to get better, just like every young player does. All that he has to do is keep doing the things he does now and work on the things that he is not quite as good at and there are not very many of them.”

 

Senior Forward/Center Cory Abercrombie

On the difference between tonight’s game to other games...

“We played together as a team. We hustled, our defense got better. We played as a team.”

 

On not completing the upset...

“Yeah, it is a little disappointing. All we can do is learn from this loss. I wish we could have won but as long as our team got better, it is a good thing.”
